I recently read a first hand account from one of JEB Stuarts troopers relating the movements during their ride around McClellan. He wrote that near Tunstall Station (just a few miles from me) that their lone artillery piece got stuck in the mud. To "persuade" the predominately Irish gun crew they strapped a keg of whiskey (captured at Garlick's Landing) to the gun carriage and told the cannoneers that the whiskey was theirs if the could get the gun moving. He wrote that they waded in hip deep and picked the gun up from the mud and carried out. They then enjoyed their whiskey once the column arrived at the Chickahominy River near Providence Forge.
